Communion: A True Story
Communion: A True Story - Whitley Strieber I'm a child of the 80's so most of the book hype I remember were Communion and a handful of stuff on bigfoot. Do I decided that after all these years I'd cave and finally give Communion a chance. I do like that Streiber didn't try to over do the dramatic moments in the book and he was very down to earth in desribing things as well has he could, but......it's hard to swallow.

His therapist seems very one sided, there was no objectivity or alternative possibilities presented by Streiber or the therapist. It just...it seemed tabloidish. I've no doubts Streiber went through SOMETHING but the evidence for what everyone seems to agree it is seems off spot.

True Or Not True That Is The Question.
Communion: A True Story - Whitley Strieber

I've been on a bit of an alien tip lately.

 

I hunted this down and picked this up in a second hand shop as it is no longer in print.

 

I just don't get it. I was told it was scary and I Must admit some of the chapters are scary. But Mostly I found I just didn't understand it. The author has written a few horror books as well, And I haven't as yet read his other works though I would like too. Then perhaps I can get a more understanding of this book.

 

Its an Abduction/UFO real life book were the author and his family are the victim;s of an alien Abduction. Whitley Strieber goes in to detail of what happened to him and some of it I found slightly disturbing. On the fact of “What if he really is talking the truth “ The author clearly believed that what he experienced was real and in this book he made a concerted effort to present facts and statements to support his belief rather than to draw objective conclusions.

 

Did it change my life to the point I will say you must read this book. No. Do I think he might of possibly made a book to make money on the whole “Extra terrestrials” thing and drag his poor family in Yes. You only have to really read the hypnosis of his poor wife or how many times they have moved to notice that something isn't quite right. Perhaps I’m Still a skeptic. Perhaps the flim might change my mind :p

Communion: A True Story
Communion: A True Story - Whitley Strieber PJ’s QUICKIE REVIEW:If you ask me today what monster lurks in my closet and scares the crap out of me, it will always be the same. Aliens. The reason for my fear: Whitley Strieber. I have never experienced such a strong reaction than when I read Streiber’s books. Streiber’s account of his true life experience involving alien abductions had me sleeping with the lights on for a month and literally coming to realize what it means to be terrified all the while engrossed and riveted by his words. Believe his account or not, but you have to read his story and judge for yourself.Communion: A True Story by Whitley Strieber is the tale of one man’s struggle with what he terms “The Visitors”, the things they do to him and his family and how he deals with the sudden realization that he is an alien abductee. This is a story of discovery, fear and strength and you shouldn’t pass this one up. This is probably the only non-fiction book that I will ever recommend but I highly urge you to read it.Recommended for people with open minds. Go in with your eyes open! I read this as a young adult for the first time, it’s scary and real but there is nothing lewd or over the heads of a mature teen.

Communion: A True Story - Whitley Strieber I think I read, or skimmed, this book when I was 12 or something. The Christopher Walken movie based on this book was hilarious (And helped me get over my irrational fear of Roswellian Grey Aliens.) I'm gonna give this one a go next time I see it in the Salvation Army where they have about 5 copies or so.
